AGADA Spins it forward for MD

By March 28, 2018 No Comments

AGADA Biosciences collaborated with SpinCo Halifax to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy Canada through SpinCo’s “Spin it Forward” program. All proceeds from the Monday evening “Spin-it-Forward” classes for the month of March were donated to the society. A special “Ride for MD” was organized on March 28th in honor of muscular dystrophy patients and parents in the community and to help raise awareness for neuromuscular disorders. AGADA’s co-founder, Dr. Eric Hoffman shared some of the latest advances in muscular dystrophy research and John Britton, Director of Strategic Initiatives for the Atlantic division of Muscular Dystrophy Canada , spoke briefly about how the donated funds can make a difference in the lives of patients living with muscular dystrophy in our community.
